The second season of the drama The Bridge and the film The Garden Of Evening Mists, will be representing Malaysia in the Asian Academy Creative Awards (AAA) in Singapore in December.

Both local productions, recipients of the Film In Malaysia Incentive (FIMI), were announced as selections to compete with entries from other Asia Pacific countries such as Australia, India, Indonesia and Japan.

The AAA, which is aimed at recognising outstanding works in the creative content industry, would be announcing the winners of its contested categories during the Grand Awards and Gala Final, scheduled for Dec 3 and 4.

FIMI is an initiative under National Film Development Corporation (Finas) that provides a financial incentive of 30% cash rebate for creative content production in the country.

Meanwhile, two Malaysian animated projects were also chosen to represent Malaysia in this award ceremony.

Last year's box office hit Ejen Ali The Movie is selected in the Best Direction (Fiction) category while Alif & Sofia got the Best Preschool Programme nomination. – Bernama
